Regulation CC imposes limits on the holds a bank can place on deposits of checks to transaction accounts. When tellers fail to place holds on deposits permitted under a bank’s funds availability policy, they increase the risk of losses due to bounced or fraudulent checks. When they place holds that aren’t permitted under the regulation, there’s added risk of litigation by bank depositors. It’s critically important that tellers understand and comply with your bank’s policy on funds availability, and that the policy complies with the Regulation CC restrictions.
